Andersen Tax

Financial Reporting

Andersen Tax conducts detailed analysis of the target’s financial statements and pertinent business documents, discussion with company management, and a thorough review of current economic and industry-specific conditions. We combine our valuation expertise with our deep knowledge of the relevant sections of both U.S. GAAP and IFRS accounting rules to deliver fair values that stand up under third-party review.

We have experience valuing a wide array of tangible assets, intangible assets and liabilities. Tangible assets include real property, leasehold improvements, leases, inventory, machinery and equipment, and other fixed assets. Intangible assets include technology and proprietary practices, customer relationships and contracts, franchise rights and licensing agreements, trade names and trademarks, non-compete agreements, and other assets.
